Underneath the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron is the old Grand Trunk Railway Depot built in 1856. This is the depot a young Thomas Alva Edison worked at while selling newspapers and books to passengers. This is the part where I am supposed to write about Edison’s accomplishments, but I am thinking most people already know what Edison did, and how he impacted the way we live with his light bulb and other inventions.
I figured I would use this post to thank you for taking the time to reading what I write. I happened to look at my stats and this is my 500th post. Yeah I know some posts are better than others, and my “writing ain’t too good” but I think I have gotten better than when I started.
I have always been kind of a geek or nerd or whatever you want to call it. I don’t follow sports, and I could not tell you how many home-runs Joe Namath has, or how many touch downs Kareem Abdul Johnson made, but I do know who the first woman to get her pilot’s license is. Harriet Quimby born in Arcadia Michigan if you’re wondering. I have always admired people who move society forward and contribute to making this world a better place, people like Sojourner Truth, L. Frank Baum, Bina Mae West, and William Livingston.
I have always had a curious mind and would rather go out and explore Michigan than play golf or go wine tasting, not that there is anything wrong with that, but the typical tourist stuff does not appeal to me that much. I have always thought I was alone in my passions, but since I have been posting stories on this website I have found there are a lot of people who have the same curiosity that I do. Thank you all for following me. I am looking forward to my next 500 posts. I hope you will come along for the journey.
P.S. If you have a friend that you think would enjoy what I post, I hope you will share my website with them.
